If you have a bright room the UT50 will not be good. It lacks the filter of the higher end sets that help with ambient light. If you have a light controlled room it's great. Also if you don't like 3d or smart features the U50 is cheaper and thats the only difference.
For your budget I would suggest the panasonic st50 in the biggest size you can get. People and especially CNET are raving about this tv and it has the filter to help with light.
I would check out avsforum because they have owner threads on the UT50, U50 and ST50.
Basically if you have a light controlled room UT50 is great, if not ST50 is much better.
I just got the 55" vt50 and it is amazing.
